I expect Spurs to get the win but it will be a close one. Which will be good for us on thursday.

Tough luck for the Lakers, they'll lose two games in two days. It'll be close today though.

How much better would we be if Diop would attack the rim like that Bynum kid?

Pretty amazing that it's sort of...oh well...see ya' later.

I do think that if they can get their shooters shooting again they can beat anyone. But man, mike, barry, bowen are in horrible slumps. It'sa killin' 'em.

The Suns are our only competition now for best record in West.

It being obvious that my team is seriously dysfunctional with their collective heads up their collective asses:

GO MAVS!

Tony Parker did some crazy crap last night though. (on offense)

I actually thought about you Rob, when I was watching the last few minutes.

Also, I hate Kobe.

I have to admit, I'm not used to seeing Spurs lose like this. Although this game wasn't a must-win, but it was still a pretty big game considering the Spurs are falling behind in the standings and they were playing against one of their rivals at home. Their roleplayers are just plain bad. A mid-season trade seems more and more likely.

I think it was pretty big in that the lakers are the team right behind them in the standings keeping them from getting hca in the first round. The lakers are only a 0.5 game behind now and tie-breakers count, as we all know from experience.

I had the pleasure of watching most of this game. What got me, and is really unfair, is that almost every foul called (except 2 against that Oberto dude) were incorrectly called fouls against the Spurs. Every.Single.One.

I watched a bunch of that and I didn't quite see it like that u2. Which calls in particular are you talking about? the last play is an example, bowen should have been called for a foul before the ball was thrown in but wasn't.

What about that late call where the ball pretty clearly went off barry but was given to the lakers?

I don't recall much more than that, but it didn't seem otherworldly to me.

Really hate to admit this...

But as much as I hate losing...

I'm almost to the point of actually anticipating a loss with each passing game.

Which of course is the total opposite of the Mav fans experience, i.e., anticipating a win regardless of the game circumstance.

Spurs are totally pathetic.

But I still love 'em/ They're my team--I will still root for them.

They gave me great years of memories--and as they descend farther down the standings (and there is no guarantee they will even be in the playoffs if they don't correct things right now), I have become almost numb.

Wish the Mavs the best this year--bring the trophy back to Texas.

And what was up with the crowd? The arena seemed empty near the end, and it was a close game! And it looked like there was a pretty big LA crowd, they sometimes drowned out the Spurs!! When did it get so bad?

The gloom and doom view of the Spurs is silly. Unless TD is out the Spurs will be right there. They are definately NOT the front running title contendors but they are truely contendors for the title along with the Mavs, Suns and Pistons.

The Spurs are still solid and amoung the elite, it's funny to see chicken little's running around.

After next week the Spurs will go on their annual rodeo road trip. The results should tell us something about the state of the Spurs.

at LA Lakers
at Utah
at Pheonix
at Washington
at Orlando
at Miami
at New Jersey

The officiating seemed pretty equal. There was alot of crazy ref decisions like when the ball went out of bounds....if i was sitting at the rafters i would have seen the ball hit Barry's leg. :D

My god...the Lakers team is looking scary...i wonder how they'll be when the get thier starting center and starting PF back. :confused:

I don't recall much more than that, but it didn't seem otherworldly to me.Well, the player that was called for the foul was either shaking their heads or throwing their arms up in the air like "What me?".... so I assumed that meant they couldn't have committed the foul. Could they?

I too though the officiating was a little suspect

The refs (not just this game, but in the past few) seem really fed up with Ginobil's flopping. It's either going as a no-call or a call against him.

I agree. As good as the Mavs and Suns have been, counting out the Spurs is like counting out the Patriots after they lost a couple of home games this past season. Both the Pats and the Spurs have slipped, but they are still proven veteran teams that know how to win in the playoffs.
